Do you think the buildwars timer should be changed from five minutes to six minutes?

    I think the buildwars time limit should be increased from 5 minutes to 6 minutes. My reasoning for this is that you don't actually get five minutes to build, since by the time you have gotten all the blocks that you might need from the creative menu, you're left with about 4 - 4.5 minutes to actually build, which when you're asked to build a school, factory or hospital, isn't anywhere close to enough time.
    Opinions?

    I agree. Maybe even 7 to 8 minutes, but you might want to take a look at a similar thread.

    Oh, thanks.
    Anyways, this is a completely different suggestion, although they are similar. I am suggesting that the time just get increased by a minute so that we have time to take the items from the creative menu, as the developers probably wouldn't want anything too complicated. The other thread's suggestion sounds just a good however.

    This is really needed. 5 minutes is a bit lacking with the depth of themes; such as Hell. +1

    Well, more time will give people more change to google and that will make it unfair. It looks like a minute is nothing, still it is enough time to google some builds. The aim of buildwars is to improvise with your build skillz in the limit time if you don't have enough time then you started with a to big project. It has to be something what has meant with a hospital, you don't need to build a whole 3D hospital with allot of details. I think adding time will change the gameplay.

    Although I do agree that it will change the gameplay, some builds are simply too complicated to be built in only five minutes, a fraction of which will be spent actually getting the blocks out of the creative inventory and deciding on your approach. Builds such as hospitals, restaurants or schools tend to go unfinished, resulting in worse scores than if you would have done nothing at all.

    It's a matter of estimating time and if the theme is hospital, restaurants or schools then it doesn't mean directly that you have to build a restaurant, hospital or school you need to be orginal that will give you points. Like making a classroom with a villager who is giving lessons to other baby villagers or maybe some experience from your time at school.
